wow i just transferred from bryn mawr to colgate! i also just heard about a girl from colgate that transferred to bryn mawr this year...haha i guess they're schools that exchange a lot of students.
some of my friends took anthro and sociology at bryn mawr last year and they loved it. in general (and i know people say this i lot, but i really believe it), almost all the teachers at bryn mawr are amazing. after coming to colgate, i really miss them and have come to appreciate them a lot more. it's because of the classes at bryn mawr that i would want to transfer back there...the type of students and professors that bryn mawr have are superior to most ive ever seen. not to say colgate professors aren't smart...i just think the ones at bryn mawr knew how to teach more than some of the ones here at colgate. i think ud have a good chance of getting into bryn mawr if you got in the first year. they accepted you cause they believed you would fit in and like it there, so unless ur grades are horrible at colgate, u shouldnt have much of a problem.
fyi, the financial aid i got to colgate was better than the aid i got at bryn mawr. i think colgate is known for giving really good aid...bryn mawr's not great, but they try.
i knew two seniors last year who were pre-law. i dont really know much about the program or how they felt about it cause i really dont like government and debating and all that...but they both absolutely loved bryn mawr, the tri-co, being able to take classes at upenn, and all their classes. i guess that says something.
i know econ is supposed to be really good here at colgate. i took into to econ at bryn mawr and i really didnt like my teacher...he was nice but he reminded me of teachers here who know so much they dont know how to teach what we actually need: the basics. he was just a visiting professor though...they took him out of retirement for a semester haha. i had friends that were econ majors though and they loved the department.
if you're really serious about transferring and want to talk about bryn mawr i'd be happy to talk with u! i really didnt know if i wanted to come to colgate and i was freaking out up until i sent my deposit...and well after. im still not sure if i made the right decision, but it's only been about a month and a half.
